CANCER (June 21-July 22): Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard believes there’s only one way to find meaning, and that’s to fill your life to the point of bursting; be in love with your experience; to celebrate the flow of events wherever it takes you. When you do this, says Godard, you don’t need or want to ask questions like “Why am I here?” or “What is my purpose?” The richness of your story is the ultimate answer to any enigma. As I ponder these ideas, I say, wow! It is an intensely vibrant way to live. Personally, I am not able to bear it all the time. But I think most of us would benefit from such an approach for brief periods from time to time. And I believe that you have just entered one of these phases.
LEO (July 23-August 22): I asked Leo readers to give their opinion on the subject “How to be a Lion”. Here are answers that match your current astrological omens. 1. People should try to understand that you are only leading them for their benefit. —Harlow Hunt. 2. Be aware of the intense shadows you can cast with your intense brightness. Consider the possibility that even if they seem questionable or risky, they have value and even blessings to offer. — Cannarius Kansen. 3. Never break your own heart. Never apologize for showering yourself with kindness and adoration. — Amy Clair. 4. Upon orgasm, scream your own name. —Bethany Grace
VIRGO (August 23-September 22): It’s your birthright as a Virgo to become a master at taking advantage of difficulties. You have a great potential to detect opportunities that merge in the midst of difficulties. You can develop a knack for spotting the order that hides in the chaos. Now is a time when you should use these skills artfully, my dear, both for your own benefit and for the good of all whose lives you touch.
LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 22): One of my heroes died in 2021: the magnificent Libra author bells (who did not capitalize her name). She was the most imaginative and independent activist I know. Until her dying day, she articulated unique truths about social justice; she maintained her originality without compromise. But it wasn’t easy. She wrote: “No insurgent intellectual, no dissenting critical voice in this society escapes the pressure to conform. We are all vulnerable. We can all be had, co-opted, bought. is just a constant struggle.” I bring this to your attention, Libra, as I suspect the coming weeks will require your strenuous efforts to stay true to your high standards and unique view of reality.
SCORPIO (23 Oct-21 Nov): You now have the power to make yourself even more beautiful than you already are. You are extraordinarily open to beautifying influences, and there will be an abundance of beautifying influences to come. I hope you understand that I am not referring to the types of beauty revered by conventional wisdom. I mean rather the elegance, the allure, the charm and the grace that you see in the old trees and the magnificent architecture and the enchanting music and the people with soulful idiosyncrasies. PS: The coming weeks will also be a good time to redefine the meaning of beauty for yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): This is the season for expressing your love and for expanding and deepening the ways in which you express your love. I invite you to say the following quotes to the right person: 1. “Your head is a living forest full of songbirds.” —EE Cummings. 2. “Lovers continually reach each other’s limits.” —Rainer Maria Rilke, 3 years old. “You are my favorite story.” — Ann Patchett. 4. “My life listens to yours.” — Muriel Rukeyser.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): In the weeks ahead, make sure you do NOT fit this description given by Capricorn novelist Haruki Murakami: “You’re looking for something, but at the same time, you’re running away for all you’re worth.” Capricorn, if there’s a goal you feel conflicted about, now is a good time to clear up your confusion. If you somehow underestimate yourself, perhaps unconsciously, now is the time to expose your inner saboteur and seek the healing needed. July will be the month of self-unification.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): A tweeter named Luxuryblkwomen lists one of her lifelong goals as “closing the gap between me and my ideal self, one day at a time.” I would like you to adopt a similar aspiration in the months to come. You’re going to be exceptionally good at building all kinds of bridges, including those that connect you to the hero you’ll be in the future. I mean, you’re already a hero in my eyes, but I know you’ll eventually become an even more fulfilled and refined version of your best self. Now is the perfect time to do the sacred work of forging a stronger bond with this future star.
PISCES (February 19-March 20): A blogger named Lissar suggests that the cherry blossom is an apt symbol for you, Pisces. She describes you as “ephemeral, flexible, fulfilled, charming, fragile but memorable and recurrent, in harmony with nature”. Lissar says that you “mystify but charm” and that your “presence is a balm, but impressive and moving”. Of course, like all of us, you also have your share of less graceful qualities. And that’s not a bad thing! We are all here to learn the art of becoming mature ourselves. It’s part of the fun of being alive. But I suspect that in the coming weeks you will be a very close match to Lissar’s description. You are at the height of your power to delight and seduce us.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): In her poem ‘Two Skins’, Bahamian writer Lynn Sweeting writes, “There is a time in every snake’s life when it wears two skins: one you can see, about to fall off, one you cannot. can’t see, skin under skin, wait.” I suspect you now have metaphorical resemblances to a snake about to molt, Aries. Congratulations on your impending rebirth! Here’s a tip: Old snake skin doesn’t always fall off; she may need to take aggressive action to open and remove it, such as rubbing her head against a rock. Be prepared to perform a comparable task.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Imagine a world 300 years from now,” writes Japanese novelist Minae Mizumura, “a world in which not only the best educated people but also the brightest minds and deepest souls speak only English. Imagine the world subjected to the tyranny of a singular ‘Logos’. What a narrow, pitiful and horrible world it would be!” Even though I’m mostly English speaking, I agree with her. I don’t want a world purged of diversity. I don’t want a monolithic culture. I don’t want everyone to think and talk the same way. I hope you share my passion for multiplicity, Taurus, especially these days. In my astrological opinion, you will thrive if you immerse yourself in a festive riot of variety. I hope you will seek out influences that you are not usually exposed to.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Imagine that you are not a person, but a mixture of four magical ingredients. What would they be? A Gemini baker named Jasmine says, “Ripe persimmons, green hills after a rain, a gleaming new Viking black glass oven, and an award-winning show horse.” A Gemini social worker named Amarantha says it would consist of “the Florence and the Machine song ‘Sky Full of Song’, a grove of birch trees, a knee-length blue cashmere sweater and three cats blacks sleeping in the sun”. A Gemini delivery driver named Altoona says, “freshly harvested cannabis buds, a bird-loving wetland at dusk, Rebecca Solnit’s book Hope in the Darkness, and the Haleakal shield volcano on Maui.” And now, Gemini, how about you? Identify your mixture of four magic ingredients. The time has come to re-imagine the poetry of YOU.
